Plan files can be prepared using design packages such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw, aswell as CAD-oriented packages such as AutoCAD. The designer draws vector lines or text with the standard software tools, and uses colors to code which lines are intended as cuts and which are intended as etched lines. In addition, pixel-based graphics such as JPEGs or Adobe Photoshop files can be burned into a surface as a duotone or grayscale image.
